Windsocks Bible Craft
As we often realize during storm season, a storm can be terrifying. It is a time that can test our faith. Children can learn more about facing the storms of life with the help of this wind sock Bible craft!
– Empty cylinder-shaped boxes such as oatmeal or Pringle potato chip boxes, 1 for each child
– Construction paper
– Yarn or strong string
– Plastic grocery bags
– Hole punch (if hole punch is not available use the sharp end of scissors to make holes.)
A windsock is designed to show us wind direction and relative wind speed. They are used at airports and in other windy locations. When the windsock is not moving very much, we know it will not be a windy day. But windsocks that are flying all the time tell us there is windy weather ahead.
Jesus talked about our “storms of life.” In Mark 13:28, he said this:
“Now learn this lesson from the fig tree: As soon as its twigs get tender and its leaves come out, you know that summer is near.
Bible Craft Instructions
1. Cover the outside of the cylindrical box with any color construction paper.
2. Cut strips of equal lengths from different colored plastic grocery bags.
3. Glue or staple strips to the inside bottom end of the cylinder.
4. Punch two holes about l/2 inch from the top of the cylinder opposite each other.
5. Thread yarn or strong string through the two holes. Tie the two ends together.
6. Hang from tree in the back yard.
Note: This can also be hung wherever there is an outside place to hang it, such as a porch or even a clothesline pole. Check with parents before hanging this outside.
